Theo Fleury, former NHL player and advocate for sexual abuse victims, will be coming to Fort McMurray to speak with those affected by a local minor hockey coach being charged for sexual assault.

Fleury revealed that he had been sexually abused by a former coach in his book, Playing with Fire, who pleaded guilty to the charges.

He reached out to the community on twitter and said he would visit, at no cost, to speak with the survivors, and said he would be here next Tuesday.
